The notoriously talented singer reveals her feelings for her infamous ex in a new cover interview with ‘Harper’s Bazaar.’
Rihanna is a woman who makes no apologies. She makes that more than clear in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar. And one of the major things that she has no interest in apologizing for is her decision to ask Chris Brown to duet with her on her sexy hit single, “Birthday Cake.”
“I thought it would be cute to do it with a guy. I wondered, who can be dirty, someone who people will really believe?” she reveals, adding that she wanted a guy who could be shocking.
Even though she and Brown had infamously split up after he brutally assaulted her in 2009, on the night before the Grammy awards, she and Brown had by then made peace and she had rescinded her order of protection against him.
“Music is music and my fans have been asking me to record with him,” she said. “I just felt like it was time. It was time.”
Surprisingly she didn’t anticipate any negative reaction to her collaboration with Chris. “Look, I understand that people had every right to be concerned about it,” she explains to the magazine. “But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”
She proudly points out that the song hit #2 on the charts even though it wasn’t sold on iTunes.
Of course, she’s since been sighted with Brown multiple times spending time together, especially in NYC recently before and after Chris was attacked by singer Drake‘s entourage in club W.i.P.
It doesn’t seem unlikely that fans will have to prepare themselves for future Rihanna/Chris collaborations. What do you think Hollywoodlifers?
